    If you came back as a Dolphin and I came back as a a guy who could talk to animals, we could be best friends. I'd rope you and we could travel the seven seas plundering treasures, drinking rum all day, and meeting beautiful sea lasses.

    I play trumpet, mostly jazz stuff these days.

    Catcher in the Rye was a stellar book! A great lesson for adolescence that every teen should read.

    For sure, man! It's not everyday I meet people I'd want to be a pirate with..it's a true honor. We can be like Jack Sparrow and Will Turner, like Micheal and Tito, like Chris Tucker and Jacky Chan.

    Yeah, it was.

    I agree, totally. It is nice to meet somebody who isn't plagued with the mainstream flu or washed up or something..I do know what you mean. How old are you, man?
